A Familiar, Partisan Response In Congress To Las Vegas Massacre

Former Vice President Joe Biden also reacted on Twitter, echoing the sentiment of many who were shocked by the news and support more gun regulation. "The bipartisan committee would make recommendations to prevent unspeakable tragedies such as the mass shooting in Las Vegas and to restore confidence in the safety of our communities", Pelosi said.

"I'm absolutely appalled and heartbroken by the acts of hate perpetrated by an individual in Las Vegas last night", said Rothfus, whose district includes Westmoreland County.

The most recent public polling on the topic comes from Quinnipiac University, this June, just after the shooting at a congressional baseball team's practice.

Zubik called on legislators to "make it far more hard for those with dangerously impaired moral reasoning, criminals and terrorists to make their point with a gun".

"Legally, you can not own it or possess it unless you go through the Class 3 paperwork and all the extensive background checks", he said.

Separately, Attorney General Bob Ferguson has recently proposed a ban on the sale of assault-style weapons and high capacity magazines in Washington state, following the shooting tragedy in Mukilteo.

Congressman Alcee L Hastings said that more than 33,000 people will die from gun violence this year.

The speaker ordered flags to half-staff at the U.S. Capitol in memory of the victims.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., says that this violence is a reminder of Congress's failure to stand up to the gun industry.

Sunday's massacre in Las Vegas spurred a ritual-like response from US politicians following the mass shootings that have left a trail of victims across the country: Democrats renewed demands for tougher gun laws while Republicans offered up prayers but showed no signs of supporting such legislation.

Kelly, who leads the gun-control group Americans for Responsible Solutions with Giffords, called the incident "domestic terrorism" and criticized the pending Republican gun bills.

"My heart breaks for the families of the victims, the wounded, and all those impacted by last night's tragic, senseless, and evil event and I continue to pray for those being treated in the hospital", said Reichert. Mr LaPierre's position is: "The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun". In this case many guns. "Gun deaths have become a part of our national identity - they are a daily occurrence". Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) told the San Francisco Chronicle that, while a suppressor doesn't completely silence gun noise, it "cuts the percentage of the noise down to make shooting sports a little nicer for people's hearing". No, we're not protected from that, because of that easy access. "None of this ends unless we do something to stop it", tweeted Sen.

Responding to questions, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said today that is the day of reflection and mourning and not a day to discuss political issues. Chris Murphy, a leading gun control advocate since the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in 2012.

Currently, purchasing a silencer can take up to nine months - a similar wait time as buying machine guns or explosives - and requires fingerprints and a photograph, which are kept as federal law enforcement records.

And while some gun restrictions, like universal background checks, tend to poll overwhelmingly favorably, the voters who care most about guns and tend to be those opposed to new restrictions, and they vote, volunteer, and donate to politicians who support that view.
